more lit reconciliation can i use? listen to how david gregory pressed john mccain over the weekend where he stands and where he feels about chuck hagel. take a listen. >> it is payback time for chuck hagg hagel, that's what this amounted to. >> of course not. we will have a vote when we get back and i am confident senator hagel will probably have the votes necessary. >> you're not a yes vote for your old friend? >> no. i don't believe he is qualified. i don't believe that we should hold up his nomination any further. >> i don't believe he is qualified. susan, when did john mccain lose complete and utter faith in his old buddy, the person that he would have nominated for defense secretary if john mccain had won back in 2000? >> one argues it happened while he was running for election and didn't get the support and when hagel supported barack obama for president. that aside, the bigger problem is what happened in the senate. we now have left this nominee who will get confirmed weaker for t they should have allowed the president's choice to go through plain and simple unless they foun
're not on the right anymore. this is the new litmus test. let's listen to john mccain who has been on a couple sides of this things. he said a short time ago on fox news this. let's watch. >> they'll probably get the votes when we return from the recess unless something else -- unless another something pops up, and that's doubtful that it will. but to be honest with you, neil, it goes back to there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people don't forget that. >> that seems honest. let's go to senator claire mccaskill who has been tough in dealing on the armed services committee with some of the zealots. i try to find political motive, why is ted cruz, the new kid on the block, acting so ferociously? why are they doing this to a guy who is a middle of the roader? i don't get it. your thoughts, senator? >> i think it's extremism. i think th
that our troops are getting the kind of strategy and mission that they deserve. >> joe, senator john mccain offered a different -- and this is -- actually, i felt better after i heard this -- he offered a different rationale for the republican opposition. it's personal. it's one that dates back to the bush presidency. >> oh, okay. >> there's a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican, he attacked president bush mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, then people don't forget that. >> oh, okay. >> you know, richard haass, for the 66,000 troops currently serving in afghanistan and for the families all across america this morning, i'm sure they're glad to know that we don't have a secretary of defense in place and we're not going to because of a seven-year-old political grudge. forget about sequestration. forget about all the cu
to a major falling out with his one time friend, senator john mccain. >> for then senator hagel to see he'll let history be the judge he was there and involved. he knows he's wrong on the basis of what happens. >> you saw the hearing know his record, are you going to support him for defense secretary? >> i will see the rest of the answers to his questions, but certainly i have very grave concerns. >> it's not just john mccain, senator lindsey graham probably won't vote for him. she tried to link him to the attacks on oh the u.s. personnel in benghazi, now threatening to hold up the confirmation unless the administration answers more questions on that attack. >> no confirmation without information. this is complete system failure and i'm going to get to the bottom of it. >> now that might have been the craziest turn in the story but former vice president dick cheney criticized the president's choice of foreign policy leaders. he told a group of wyoming republicans: >> cheney should know from sect rate people, because dick cheney is now criticizing someone else's foreign policy team. i give
. >> reporter: for senator john mccain, defense cuts are the most damaging. >> the world is very dangerous. i'm sorry, i'm a little emotional about this but the men and women serving in the military deserve better. the consequences are severe. it requires a bipartisanship. would i look at some revenue closers? maybe so, but we've already just raised taxes. why do we have to raise taxes again? >> reporter: national security also an issue. after last week's senate confirmation hearings for two key cabinet members. senator lindsay graham sear reed in again on the attack in benghazi, libya, angry after hearing president obama may not have followed up with his defense team after learning about the attacks. >> the american people need to know what their commander in chief, did if anything, during the attack. i don't think we should allow brennan to go forward for the cia director shirntion hagel to be confirmed as secretary of defense until the white house gives us an accounting. >> reporter: senator mccain says he has grave concerns about confirming hagel. blocking a vote, though is considered a d
've been deeply concerned about his previous comments. john mccain, the fact that he wouldn't answer a straight forward question is disappointmented. john barrasso, he appeared weak and wobbly. are you concerned? >> well, everyone you quoted is a republican, and it's pretty obvious that the political knives were out for chuck hagel. >> and you think that was totally personal, partisan? >> well, what disappointed me is they talked a lot about past quotes. but what about what a secretary of defense is confronting today. what about the war in afghanistan? what about the war on terrorism? what about the budget sequester and what impact it will have on readiness? what about middle east turmoil? what about cyber attacks? all of the issues that confront a secretary of defense, frankly, those were -- we just did not see enough time spent on discussing those issues. and in the end, that's what counts. >> you're fully confident chuck hagel is prepared to take your place? >> absolutely. >> general dempsey, we did a word count. something like 37 mentions of afghanistan in an eight-hour hearing.

't help, of course, is that his former good friend, john mccain, just eviscerated him, grilled him, didn't give him a chance. yes or no. give me an answer. were you correct or incorrect? i mean, there is a way to try to do that, but clearly he came with a very hostile attitude. and it was very painful to watch. >> yeah. awkward at times. >> i mean, john mccain, mika, didn't let him answer a question. i'm sorry, out of that exchange, it was not chuck hagel who looked bad. >> ted cruz looked even worse. >> yeah. >> oh, my god. >> we're going to show all those coming up. >> he wasn't prepared, mika, in a lot of ways that were concerning. i think, again, the democrats, republicans, independents alike, if the republicans party thinks badgering an ill-prepared witness that way is going to help them with middle america, they don't know middle america. they could have just let him talk around in circles, but it was -- you know, you talk about the new senator from texas, john mccain -- >> i agree with you. >> as joe manchin said, it was embarrassing. >> compare it to a week ago, to a very prepare
, i think the republican party, you know who said it best? let's give him credit, john mccain. he was my partner in 2005. i and congress flake now senator flake introduced it in the house and senator kennedy introduced comprehensive immigration reform. you saw what he said last week. why are you doing it? he said, politics. one word. politics. but you know what, what does that really mean? let's extrapolate a little bit. in other words those people won't vote for us if we don't do this. i want to have the ability to talk to them and garner their vote. so the community spoke and now politicians are changing. i think it's refreshing in washington, d.c. to hear people simply tell the truth. >> jennifer: i'm so happy to hear you say that. i--i question their authenticity and rationallal rational, east it might createat least it mightcreate policies. there was actually a group of pro immigration activists who i think disrupted today's hearing just before congressman dearly issa spoke. listen to this. [ protesting ] >> the committee will have order. >> jennifer: it's a little bit hard f
on immigration. he placed calls to marco rubio, and john mccain -- >> they are sticking their necks out on this issue. what is frustrating for them, which you saw expressed in some of the things rubio said and paul ryan has said in the last couple of days, if they are going to stick their necks outs, they want to feel they have a partner with the white house. >> joining me right now is democratic congressman eric shifz zer. let's dive in to bring everybody up to speed on where we stand with nine days out on the quester. interesting with the piece out by john boehner, carney has tweeted out, speaker boehner is rewriting history in the op-ed for getting he said i got 98% of what i wanted when he and 173 house rs voted for the sequester. are you surprised by the game of chicken being played in washington, d.c., especially when it comes to the amount of cuts that are coming on march 1st? >> i wish i could say i'm surprised but we've seen enough over the last year and a half not to be surprised by yet another impasse. and i think this is really a lot about damaging members of his congress. t
for defense secretary hangs in the balance, one republican is having a slight change of heart. senator john mccain said today even though he does not think hagel is qualified, he should be confirmed because enough time has been allowed for questions. another senate vote is expected after congress returns february 25th. >>> the news edge on d.c. now and a house fire in southeast turns into a crime scene. in all seven people inside a home on 33rd street were taken to a hospital after the house caught fire around 3:00 this morning. two children were injured. one was unconscious when firefighters pulled her to safety and performed cpr. the homeowner has been arrested and faces simple assault and felony threat charges. neighbors describe the scene as chaotic. >> maybe around 2:30, 3:00 a heard a lot of banging and around 3:00 i started to see the fire trucks and they were sawing on the roof trying to get the roof open breaking all the windows. >> the fire happened right behind mayor gray's house. his security detail was the first to call for help. officials are still investigating the cause of the fir
points on the board. john mccain or senator graham is how do i put a point against him. the democrats make a long speech and how do i put a point for him. these used to be a long time ago let's find out how he would manage the defense department. let's find out what his values are that might be important for us to know. none of that happens. it's all about making points. >> what's clear is that president obama miscalculated a bit thinking if i put forward someone with an "r" next to their name, i'll have an easier time here. clearly that's not the case. but i also think that, you know, john mccain certainly did his bit for his country and languished in a prison of war camp for 5 1/2 years. i think john mccain and lindsey graham's concerns are real. in the end they probably will not carry the day, but in a critical time with the threats we face, it's totally legitimate, whoever the nominee was, to be grilled on what their point of. >> one final issue before we go. big night, the super bowl, the ads have already been sold, $3.8 million to $4 million for a 30-second ad. this year a littl
no evidence of. you have john mccain coming to chuck hagel's defense. >> good for john mccain. >> good for john mccain. you have stepped over the line. >> there's been a pattern with the hagel debate of people going beyond legitimate public debate. we saw it on the charges of anti-semitism. now illegal money or whatever. there's a legitimate debate to have about chuck hagel or any other nominee. this is way past that. but there's an irony here. hagel, in part, got this nomination in order to bridge the partisan divide. it was supposed to be someone who would appeal to republicans. instead he gets reported out with a straight party-line vote. no republicans supporting him. this cannot be what anyone in washington intended. >> i know. john heilemann, i hate to keep bringing him up because i hate bringing up somebody simply for bad behavior, but i'm absolutely flummoxed by ted cruz's short-term and long-term political strategy. you know, mark halperin told me before he got sworn in, he was a very smart guy, a bright guy, a harvard lawyer. i just don't -- this is a guy that could have such
they are going to vote for him. john mccain saying he would oppose any filibuster on his confirmation vote. >> it seems michael. there aren't. lined see gram of south carolina has indicated he would like to see president obama nominate someone else and chuck hagel's name removed for contention but there is no one saying they are going to filibuster. it looks like it will go through. you have seen very powerful outside groups at play in the election weigh in heavily, spending half a million dollars on nationally televised ads against chuck hagel's nomination but it doesn't look like there are big road blocks here. >> national televised ads against chuck hagel have no impact on the decision. >> their plan was to target democrats up for reelection in 2014, hope the pressure of the public to call their elected officials and get them to vote no on hagel. there are some folks like jim inhofe, the ranking member on the senate armed services, who will vote no. >> is itt doesn't have to be 100%. >> the bottom line is there aren't enough republicans out there saying
at 8:00 eastern on american history tv on c-span3. >> john mccain's 2000 campaign when he ran for president is the most memorable campaign of any that i have never covered or been around. we will never see it again. here he was facing george w. bush, who had all the characters of the republican party backing him and all the money, and john mccain went out and held 114 town meetings, and he stayed there until every question was answered. you could see the light bulb going on over people's heads asking about a patient's bill of rights, and john mccain would say, "we are not going to get a patient's bill of rights as long as my party is owned by the insurance companies and the wned by others." there was a candor and openness no one had seen before and no one has seen since. >> longtime columnist and political analyst mark shields on his career in politics and the washington press corps sunday night at 8:00 on c-span's "q&a." >> "washington journal" continues. host: kathleen strottman is executive director of the congressional coalition on adoption institute and is here to talk to
of your group? guest: chuck schumer, dick durbin, michael bennet, myself, john mccain, michael rubio, lindsey graham, and, i think, that is it, unless i missed one. bob menendez, i am sorry. host: do you have more that want to join the effort at this point? guest: not specifically that want to join, but there are those sympathetic and when they see the legislation, we think they will come on board. we hope that once they see what is required for someone to advance status and get on a path toward citizenship, they will say it comports with the rule of law, it is humane and realistic and something we have to do. host: do you have folks on the house side working with you? guest: there is a bipartisan group over there that is trying to fashion some legislation as well. people like role labrador, louise bluebeard -- luis gutierrez and many others. they are getting closer to something like the senate is doing, and that certainly helps. host: senator jeff flake is our guest, republican of arizona. we have put our phone lines up. we have set aside the fourth line for illegal immigrants. we w
-scale blizzard. john mccain probably would have preferred to have been on the golf course. he was at a town hall meeting yesterday. he was for immigration when president bush was in the white house. when he was against immigration reform under president obama. the first term. now, he's back and for immigration reform. his constituents weren't too happy. one of them challenging him about why they don't build a fence. >> build a dang fence. where's the fence? >> in case you missed it, i showed you -- >> that's not a fence. >> that's not a fence. it is a banana. we're putting up a banana. about $600 million worth of appropriations that we have. >> bill: mccain has gotten so grumpy. when he ran for president in 2000, at those town hall meetings, i covered him in new hampshire. i traveled on that bus with him. he was so good at those town hall meetings. he was on top of it. people challenged him and he always had a good answer. little sense of humor. >> it's not a fence. it's a banana. >> that's one way to handle it, i guess. >> bill: stick it in your ear. cindy here to start off the hour. little bit
because it's not fair, but the republican young breed aren't even as cool as john mccain. mccain is pretty cool as a personality. these guys, this new crowd. the key word in what john mccain said there was another, another cudgel. >> yeah. >> there's been -- in other words, the democrats have had the upper hand now for weeks now, if not months, and he's just saying -- when he said they've got more cudgels to beat us up with, that told me everything. >> it's even better because the president to some extent stands on the sidelines while they self-cudgel. they're beating themselves up. >> i think that's a six -- >> the president i'm perhaps belatedly coming to realize is really deft at using the outside game, which is how he started, social media, et cetera, using public sentiment and the outside game to pressure the congress without doing it himself directly in a way that divides the other party and forces them to come to him. he makes them come to him because -- he's for the most part hands off. we're saying why isn't he lbj or lincoln? that's not how this president operates. he operates wi
's not the case. but i also think that, you know, john mccain certainly did his bit for his country and languished in a prison of war catch for 5 1/2 years. i think john mccain and lindsey graham's concerns are real. in the end they probably will not carry the day but in a critical time with the threats we face it's totally legitimate whoever the nominee is to be grilled on what their point of. >> one final issue before we go. big night, the super bowl, the ads have been sold, 3.8 to $4 million for a 0-second ad. this year a little something different. we've seen so many before the game. my favorite is going to nominate it first, the volkswagen come on be happy ad. ♪ ♪ took my love >> wait. >> i like that one, as well. jorge, your pick. >> godaddy.com between the model and the -- went on and on and on. i think it was really great and i think it's going to be commercial. >> there's bar ralphly and she's going to lip lock with that young man that you see right there. >> all right. well, the mercedes ad with the devil, willem dafoe as the devil caught my attention mostly because of the background
that did not harm but would gather information. this administration ran against john mccain saying, even though john mccain agreed, yeah, we don't want to water board, we don't want to do anything that somebody might someday call torture, they complained, gee, this is allowing radicals to be recruited against the united states because of the unjust nature of doing a procedure that's not harmful to someone's health, to gather information to save american lives, which it did. here we are now with this administration that thought waterboarding helped jeeyaddists -- jihadists recruit more radicals using a process of having a high administration official think to himself or herself, i don't think this may be enough. blow them up. without giving adequate consideration to civilians who will be killed, to family members who will be upset, to the ability of our enemies to use that to recruit other radicals, many times over, to replace those that have been killed with a drone strike. this administration's systemic failure to understand what the muslim brotherhood calls, quote, civilization jihad,
. take vietnam. i will never forget standing next to john mccain in the east room of the white house. each of us on either side of president clinton as he announced the once unthinkable normalization of our relations with vietnam, and efforts that john mccain and i worked on for about 10 years to try do. in the last decade, thanks in large part to the work of usaid, our exports to vietnam increased by more than 700%. every one of those percentage points our jobs here in america. in the last two decades, 1000 vietnamese students and scholars have studied spanish and taught -- have studied and taught in america through the fulbright program, including the foreign minister, who i just talked to the other day and who has feelings about america because of that engagement. the list goes on. as the emerging middle class in india, the world's largest democracy, buys our products, that means jobs and incomes for our own middle-class. as our traditional assistance to brazil and decreases, trade there is increasing. brazil is one of the new tigers moving at a double-digit pace. it supports addi

wonder how you ever stomached sitting next to hagel for all those years or how john mccain could have said this in 2000 about secretary of defense positions. >> there's a lot of people that could do that. one of them i think is senator chuck hagel. >> then there were the democrats on the committee who seemed intent to steer clear of big questions opting instead to praise hagel's war service, praise israel or gently lead the witness back to approved foreign policy bromides and away tr dangerous taboos. >> your commitment that i ran should not under any circumstances have had ability to have a nuclear weapon. and i appreciate that position very much. >> and i appreciate your taking the time to meet with me. we had an extensive discussion and your understanding of the complex challenges we face in the middle east and the importance of our alliance with israel. >> i would like for you as the committee is getting to know you, know something about your service in vietnam and your combat experience. were you wounded, senator hagel? >> finally, there was the nominee himself, who appeared to h
, we've been kvetching and bitching and complaining for the last week or so about john mccain, you know, loser from 2008 who is still the face of the republican party. you never see mitt romney. talk about a loser. but mccain and they keep putting him out there on the sunday shows every sunday, every show. every day every show. overexposure for a guy who's got nothing more -- nothing to say anymore. and talk about people who have nothing to say anymore, here's the big one. cpac conservative political action committee which has its huge gathering of conservatives it is a big event here in washington, d.c., every year in march. this year, yesterday they announced the headliner the keynote speaker for this year's cpac event, sarah palin. >> no! >> bill: talk about the number one loser. here she is, four years ago -- i'm sorry, last year at cpac -- >> at the 1975cpac, he laid out a blueprint for rebuilding the g.o.p. under a banner of full color. and ever since then, cpac has been the rally for conservative action and that's why i'm glad to be here today with all of you conservative activis
of these international obligations. >> on the issue of -- [inaudible] john mccain said today that the borders are not secure and arizona remains the main drug pipeline from drugs coming from mexico. until this issue is resolved there would be no path to citizenship. understanding the numbers there, still how will the white house certify, how will the white house propose to convince those along the borders that what they are saying is not true? >> i think we made the point clearly backed up by independent data that our borders are more secure since the president took office. we made grade strides in border security in the last several years. we have designated significant resources to that. that effort is resulting in fewer -- we're producing positive results in terms of migration. we have never said that the work is done. that's why when the president talks about comprehensive immigration reform and the president lays out his blue print that he has done more than a year. the number one priority is continuing to take necessary action to enhance our border security following on the work that ha

to know how has john mccain can question this man like he is not too good. another thing, they are only doing this because of who the president is. they are open with that. host: we will leave it there. guest: i think john mccain -- i think what you see is a real passion for the issues that he was questioning him about. he is a passionate man. he is someone who cares deeply and that was evident yesterday. i think he is someone who takes things personally and very much to heart. and again, the iraq war was something he felt acutely and was very outspoken on and has been throughout the execution of that war. i think you could see that yesterday. host: she is a senior adviser for the center for studies. if you want to watch senator hagel's hearing in total, i invite you to go to our c-span video library at www.c- span.org. thank you very much. coming up, it is our regular look at america by the numbers. they will look at how americans across the country are doing financially. we will be right back. >> my cartoons depict native humor. when i first started this cartoon, they were native cha
